Default To match a knife I'm making

Nothing too spectacular except it is a first for me. I've never put a band of metal in a pen. I'm making a stainless steel knife with desert Ironwood that has black liners. So, I made a pen to match--desert Ironwood, black liner, and stainless steel band.

Very nice !!!! . Thank you for posting ! . I never would have thought of putting a band on a short blank like the 30 Cal Bolt Action . Another thing goes on my to-do list.

You did a great job matching the metal band to the pen kit components. I know from experience that this isn't easy to do. :)
